Depave Paradise: Collaborative Community Greening - Virtual
Join us to learn more about how the Depave Paradise program is transforming communities across the country!
About this event
For over ten years, Green Communities Canada (GCC) has been coordinating Depave Paradise, a nation-wide program in which communities come together to rip up asphalt (by hand!) and replace it with beautiful community green spaces.
On Wednesday, April 6th, join GCC for our FREE half-day forum, Breaking Ground: Collaborative Community Greening where we will celebrate the wide-reaching impacts of Depave Paradise, and explore the many ways that local non-profit organizations, municipalities, and businesses have come together to transform their communities.
Through a combination of talks, panel discussions, and workshops we will cover topics including:
- The History of the Depave Paradise Program
- Green Infrastructure & Place-Making
- Strategies for Community-Engaged Participatory Planning
- Community Support for the Depave Program
- Long-term Depave Site Maintenance
- Selecting Plants for Depave Projects
The event will feature presentations from organizations delivering the Depave Paradise program across the country, including Montreal Urban Ecology Centre (MUEC), Peterborough GreenUp, Green Venture, Environment Network, and Oakville Green.
